It's Ke$ha's "Die Young" Single: Listen

Soul icon Ke$ha's new single "Die Young" surfaced online this evening, and I have to say that, musically, it's a totally catchy synth-pop jam — albeit one that sounds not unlike Flo Rida's "Good Feeling"/Avicii's "Levels".

But as for the vocals, K-hole comes off sounding like she hasn't progressed an inch since the release of her debut smash "Tik Tok" three years ago. The verses are delivered with her signature talk-rap-singing, and unfortunately, she ain't really saying all that much new.

Ultimately, what saves "Die Young" are those synths. But other than that, it doesn't have me looking forward to Ke$ha's upcoming LP Warrior all that much. You?
